Jon Stewart used his monologue on The Daily Show to talk about the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France. Watch his powerful message below.
Here’s a quick transcript of what he said:
“Very few people go into comedy as an act of courage, mainly because it shouldn’t have to be that. It shouldn’t be an act of courage, it should be taken as established law. But those guys at Hebdo had it, and they were killed for their cartoons, a stark reminder that–for the most part–the legislators and journalists and institutions that we jab and ridicule are not in any way the enemy…. This type of violence only clarifies that reality.”
